I danced at Dana’s Studio for eleven years and have known Dana for much longer. I loved growing up in a studio that valued the whole person. Dana and her staff are kind, caring, and compassionate. In an industry that can over-emphasize the value of being rail-thin, Dana teaches the beauty and value in every dancer, regardless of body type. Technique and performance are certainly a priority, but are not placed before development of the whole dancer. I feel that I received a well-rounded education in many disciplines, and developed confidence both in the studio and in the world. I would recommend this studio to anyone, especially to those with young girls.
